Peppers furnish resorts for revenue growth

  • 31 August, 2004 16:57

<p>Peppers Resorts &amp; Retreats, operator of over 20 luxury resort properties across Australia has successfully implemented a hosted Private Network Solution from Comindico Australia.</p>
<p>Peppers appointed Comindico to provide tailored access for each exclusive resort facility via its national IP infrastructure, along with hosted Internet connectivity within one of its 66 secure data centre facilities nationwide.</p>
<p>Recognising its growing number of properties under management, Pepper’s approached the marketplace in search of a partner to provide a standardised network solution that ensured security, flexible access options, and on-going performance reliability.</p>
<p>Peppers Group IT Manager Paul Jaros said Comindico was chosen because it provided the most simple and cost-effective solution, enabling the company to develop additional communications services for the benefit of its guests.</p>
<p>He added that Peppers was progressing with the introduction of wireless communications in each property and was already benefiting from services such as ‘broadband to the room’ and video conferencing for corporate guests,</p>
<p>“By not requiring technical staff at each property and centralising IT management, Peppers has been successful in keeping administration and security costs to a minimum.”</p>
<p>Mr Jaros commented that Peppers needed a partner that could be flexible to its evolving needs and implementation timeframes,</p>
<p>“Comindico has consistently exceeded our expectations by understanding our business constraints and delivering site connectivity on schedule. Yet more importantly for the business, we now have a flexible IP platform in place upon which we can add service layers, providing new avenues for revenue growth.”</p>
<p>Comindico’s service contract for private IP network connectivity across each property provides Peppers with rigorous service-level guarantees and access to detailed performance reporting facilities.</p>
<p>"We are confident that our business has a services partner in Comindico that listens &amp; delivers on our requirements to enhance our business growth."</p>

<p>Comindico, which was founded in August 2000, has since spent more than $400 million to build a single fully integrated IP network capable of delivering high speed internet, voice calls, data, video and fax services to more than 98 per cent of Australian homes and businesses.
Comindico’s IP network can be used for teleconferencing, telecommuting, voice (VoIP), video transmission and other applications, along with linking of multiple offices, support for file exchange and email and Internet access – all over the one convergent communications link. This makes network management and implementation easier and dramatically reduces costs.
The Comindico network consists of 66 strategically located points of presence (PoPs), five domestic peering (Internet connection) centres, and interconnect agreements with some of Australia’s major carriers to provide nationwide coverage.</p>
